  1. Today
  2. I think that term is trademarked and you can't use it unless you turned in the paperwork.
  3. Yeah but I can hardly blame the guy. Spammers suck.
  4. Gnarly. I have done one SaddleSore 1000 on the Multistrada. I used a rigid Camelbak backpack that I would fill with ice when I stopped for fuel. I carried several 32oz Gatorade bottles in my panniers and refilled every time I refueled. I snacked on a PayDay or granola bar at every stop as well. I mounted an EZ Pass and wore earbuds to keep my brain awake. I did stop for lunch at a service exit and managed to pull it off in just over 19 hours. I almost fell over in the last few miles because I forgot to put my foot down at a stop light. I damn near ran the thing because I forgot to pull the brake lever. The first 18 hours were a breeze. That last bit where I had to navigate city streets and intersections damn near got me dead a couple times. I was exhausted... and that was 1000 miles and less than twenty hours. I can't imagine doing something like this in one stretch.
  5. Yesterday
  6. Wow, the above post is a true story.
  7. I can't bring myself to try an iron butt, that takes it to the next level.

  9. Last week
  10. Spent the day NE of Marietta enjoying the colors and lite traffic for a 350 mile day ride. Crap video snippets: https://youtu.be/AlVUILIUv60
  11. Drained the final drive, greased the splines, and put it all back together. Not too bad for a bike with over 50k miles.
  12. TTR125 is a great choice for a bike to grow into. Even old fat guy capable, at least in my experience. As for the n+1 theory, I still see some unused floor space available. You're not done yet!
  13. I picked up two ttr125s with the larger wheels (19" front). All 3 girls are now set for a while. We are now testing the limits of the n+1 theory.
  14. We work on a little bit of all kinds of heavy civil construction. We mostly work in Central and Southern Ohio.
  15. Good to meet you, I'm xtra smedium.
  16. You work on slips as well, eh? I've been working on them in the Appalachians for the last 6-7 years.
